You will need to push in the reset button with a paper clip. The reset button is on the back of the router near one of the antenna.
here are the proper instructions:

Change password


when i think of routers to passwords come to mind:
the administrative username and password
the wireless name (SSID) and wireless password

if you don't know the admin stuff you will need to set the router to factory defaults before you can do anything. its easy use something to push the reset button for 12 seconds. login by going to routerlogin.net or 192.168.1.1 and enter the default admin stuff "admin" and "password".

now to change the admin password (so other people can't mess with your router) go to the admin tab.
to re-setup your wireless go to the wireless tab

hopefully something i said answers your question

I have netgear wireless router. My grandchild friend brought over her laptop and connected wireless. Now it comes up her name. it used to say netgear 5. then it asks for WPA password


Sounds like someone renamed the router and gave it a password from within the Router settings. You will need to ask the people that were messing with it what the password is. Or you could do a factory reset on it to remove the password. Note: It is best to have a password for it in order to connect to it. Otherwise others will be able to connect to your network, like neighbors and such.

I have got a 2nd laptop and cant remenber my password to connect it to my wireless connection


If yuor first laptop is able to connect then try installing SIW on it and click the PASSWORDS link to see if it will retrieve the wireless password off the first laptop.
If not, and you cannot get into the router either, you will need to reset the netgear to factory by depressing the reset button in the back for 10 seconds, which resets the login to 'admin' and the password to 'password' to allow access to the router, and setting the wireless security to NONE - allowing you to change it to something you can remember.

If you are able to get into the router, but simply cannot remember the wireless password, you can reset it to something else without resetting the router through the wireless security menu in the router. You will need to then set both laptops to use the new password.

I have forgotten my username and password for 192.168.1.1 and i want my router to be password protected so my neighbours dont mess with it


Reset the router ..
To reset the router using the reset button, use these steps:
  1. Look for the red reset button at the back of the router.
  2. Press and hold the reset button for approximately 5 seconds
Linksys sets the default to 192.168.1.1 (http://192.168.1.1/
you will be asked for your credentials, leave the username blank and enter "admin" for the password

My Dell 2350 router was working fine and was password protected. I must have messed up the settings because now it is no longer password protected (I can tell because the padlock next to it is now gone.)...


Hey!

Looks like someone pressed the reset button on your router which caused it to go back to it's factory settings that's why you lost the password.

Hope this helps! :D

I want to install HG510 provied by mtnl


You have to take a pen and hit the reset button, and hold in on it for about thirty seconds to minute. Be sure to re-secure your wireless internet after that, so your neighbors can't use it, by using a personal password. It is located under basic wireless setup on the router page. 192.168.1.100 is the default after the reset of linksys been pressed.

I think I messed up password on secure network. How can I reset modem/password


There should be a small button behind the router, you should be able to only press the button with a pin or a pen, something small. Keep it pressed for 15 seconds, then try the default username and password.
